Dean's Welcome

Welcome to the Marybelle and S. Paul Musco School of Nursing and Health Professions!

We stand at a crossroads in health care. There are intense pressures on the clinicians, educators, scientists, and policy makers who lead the health professions to provide innovative improvements in health care in local communities, across the United States, and around the globe. A growing body of research clearly links advanced educational preparation to improved health outcomes.

Our programs share a focus on preparation for a health care environment that is characterized by rapidly changing health care policy and information technology.  Our graduates will be prepared to leverage these changes to provide state-of-the-art, evidence-based, patient-centric health care and health promotion.

Brandman programs blend periodic immersion sessions and clinical practice where you live with online lectures, demonstrations, exercises, and social networking. This blend of teaching methods provides a rich and engaging learning experience for adults who want to move to the next stage of their professional careers.

Come join us!
